I came across a dozen or so monarch butterflies today, enjoying nectar from the purple asters in Vilas Park.
This monarch butterfly was so intent on flying from blossom to blossom, lapping up lunch, it was in no mood to sit still for a nice portrait. I did manage to get a couple of shots from interesting angles though.
A couple more shots from Olbrich Garden’s Blooming Butterflies show.
Because sometimes, you just need to be still and show off your wings.
